New Fortnite Season 9 Teaser Points to a Futuristic Theme

New Fortnite Season 9 Teaser Points to a Futuristic Theme

"The future is bright"

With less than 48 hours to go now until Fortnite Season 9 kicks off, we've got a brand new teaser for the new season. "The future is bright," reads the caption of the new teaser image, all but confirming the new futuristic theme for Fortnite Season 9.

Just below, you can see the tweet from the official Fortnite Twitter account containing the tease. The outfit in the image looks like a mashup between Carol Danvers' flying gear, and Master Chief's battle armor.

If past traditions are anything to go by, this is one of the character outfits that you'll be able to earn through the new Battle Pass. The pass itself, which retails for $10, unlocks 100 reward tiers for you to progress through, and we can pretty safely assume that the outfit pictured above will be one of the many rewards.

As for Fortnite Season 9 itself, there's been no official word on the start time for the event. We know that it will begin on Thursday, May 9, and if history is any indication, the event should be kicking off around 1 a.m./4 a.m. PT that morning.
